    Not to mention that Tywin waltzes in and knows nothing of where those specific prisoners came from, right? Does the torturer mention where they came from?

    I don't believe Roose Bolton was ever a prisoner at Harrenhal. He arrived at Harrenhal shortly after Arya freed the Northman and he took charge of Harrenhal until being called away by Robb and left Harrenhal to Vargo Hoat.

    I wanted to point that out as well, Tiassa. You are confused. Arya was not with any of Lord Stark's bannermen. She was traveling with Yoren, who is from the Night's Watch, under the guise that (s)he was going to the wall. There is no proper association with the Nights Watch and Ned Stark (other than his brother Benjen being a ranger, now lost). There's no reason for someone in Westeros to think that Arya would be with them.

    And maybe they didn't tell tywin where those prisoners came from because, as a Lord, he might have enough respect for the Watch that he would not approve.

    Somebody like Tom Hanks had a bit where everything you needed to say is a line from The Godfather.

    This is accurate. He wasn't a prisoner. Although you can't blame someone for being confused. The whole Bolton/Frey plot-line can be confusing as hell. This is where a page like this comes in handy:

    Be careful if you haven't read all the books to set the 'scope' correctly.

    That quote I know. I liked Pulp Fiction, but have only seen it once so I didn't remember the line. Sorry, danterner. :(

    I had heard that you were a serious man, to be treated with respect. But I must say no to you.

    Yes, thanks--we were discussing this at work today and couldn't remember how it happened in the book, even tho we've both read them all.

    If I were Tywin I wouldn't want to drink from any cup that Arya had access to, unless she did drink from it first. If he's not on her list, the rest of his family is......

    Also, Tywin doesn't know Arya is missing from King's Landing. Tyrion came from meeting with his father to King's Landing to assume the position of the Hand. It was there he learned from Cersei that Arya was missing.

    There's no reason that Tywin would think she is Arya. He might suspect she is high born from the north because of her accent but that's a reach.

    The torturers didn't even differentiate between those they caught from some village and those they caught from Yoren. They were asking them the same questions!

    And we saw Tywin's entire exchange from the moment he got there to the moment he hired her as the cup bearer. He just saw someone who can do the job.

    What I REALLY worry about is that Tywin likes his women on the young side and has other plans for the poor little peasant girl he just hired.

    I think as far as they're concerned, answers are just something that could potentially get in the way of the torture...

    But Cersei had clearly put a lid on that particular bit of news; disappointing their father is something all 3 children dread more than death.

    speaking of torture: isn't there a better way (off the top of my head: a big huge sword or an ax!) to cut off a leg than slowly sawing it off while complaining about the horrors of war?

    Nope. A sword will just shatter the bone, making things worse.

    Also, using a saw is much more accurate than swinging a great big, heavy sword or axe. Besides, that girl was rather small. I doubt she'd be able to swing that heavy of a heavy weapon. And if she could a few times, she'd quickly get too sore and tired to help other wounded.

    No, he was. He was caught by Vargo Hoat and the Brave Companions and brought before Armory Loach at Harrenhal. It was his group that Arya freed with her "weasel" soup.
